TULSA, Oklahoma -

A Tulsa man is in jail after being captured and hog-tied by his would-be victim, according to Tulsa Police. 

Tulsa Police say Kalvin Hulvey, 35, was arrested Monday afternoon and booked into the Tulsa County jail on a complaint of larceny of a motor vehicle.

Jeremy Penny, of Tulsa, spotted the suspect stealing his car, followed him, and yanked him out of the car. Then he and his father hog-tied him and suspended him on a nearby fence until police arrived.

Penny was with his brother and father baling hay Monday in a Tulsa field off North Garnett, when he spotted Hulvey stealing his 1997 Buick LeSabre.

"Saw the guy walking, but didn't pay him any mind," said Penny. "Then I looked back and I saw him taking off in my car."

Penny and his dad got in another truck and chased the driver to an intersection, where they all got caught up in traffic.

"I was really mad when I drove up next to him and he was changing my radio station," said Penny.

The 6-foot-5-inches, 240-pound Penny then yanked Hulvey out of the car. Then he and his father hog-tied Hulvey and secured him to a fence until police arrived.

"I rodeo, we both rodeo," said Penny. "But here lately, I've been having bad luck keeping calves tied, so he did the tying up. That way we made sure he stayed tied."

Although no one was injured, including Hulvey, Tulsa Police advise victims not to attempt to apprehend criminals themselves.

Penny generally agreed with that advice.

"It could have gone bad in so many different ways," he said. "There was only one way it could go good and it just so happen it went good for me today."

Bond for Hulvey, who has prior felony convictions including burglary and possession of a controlled drug, was set at $10,000.
